    "Great read every day. Makes me smile as Rab muses about music and his irreverent views on the EU. Tune in, you won't be disappointed."

    "Excellent 'Blog' which can be controversial at times, while maintaining it's humour. Keep it up Big Rab!"

    "Updated every day with doses of good humour, political satire, a running commentary on the progress of author's home football team and his life."

    "Pure brilliant, so it is - I never miss it, though God knows, I've tried."

    "An inspiration to start my own blog"

    "For dipping into it's better than pakora sauce"

    "Anyone who doesn't like the EU and has a soft spot for Albion Rovers can't be all bad"

    "Facile and False"

    "Populist,puerile and prosaic"

    "Utter pish! Keep it up, I love it!"

    "People may also find the Ben Lomond Free Press blog illuminating, interesting and/or amusing. It’s not mentalist as such but familiar themes emerge. I particularly like accounts of encounters with strange elementals (of course! ELEmentals!) from elfin safety. And the fact that the blog is run by someone who plays in a blues band called Harmonica Lewinsky."

Just how uncool am I?

The documentary about Gerry Rafferty on BBC2 Scotland tonight was just wonderful.

Can’t be long now……

……..before they catch Gaddafi.

He has a large bounty on his head.



Bob’s your (carb) uncle!

Dedicated to Boghead Bob

AnElephantCant say he’s astonished
Dumbarton’s been nominated this year
No cause for alarm
This town of great charm
Is thought a carbuncle, oh dear

It has a big rock and a castle
And a couple or 3 supermarkets too
The centre of town
Is mostly closed down
The busiest place you will find is the buroo

Even the fitba team is feeling the pressure
Down at the foot of the Second Division
While Ayr’s Super U’s
Continue to cruise
The Sons are a source of derision

But Dumbarton still has one great feature
Full of magic excitement adventure
Who would have thought
The town’s brightest spot
Is an emporium called the Pet Centre

Aye Oor Rab runs a palace of wonder
Full of budgies and fish and snakes too
There’s wee dugs and parrots
There’s bunnies munching carrots
This Elephant is glad he’s no’ running a zoo!
